Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Carol and I reside in N.E. Atlanta.

My Dad began this amazing journey in finding our heritage. While on this journey we had discovered so many relatives and friends.

Peternal Lineage ...

Hape ~ Rogers ~ Puderbach ~ Putnam ~ Hall ~ Naill ~ Ecker ~ Engel ~ Reifsnider ~ King ~ Robbins ~ Thompson ...

Maternal Lineage ...

Hunt ~ Edwards ~ Harris ~ Brown ~ Clay ~ Simmons ~ Wingate ~ Maddox/Maddux ~ Knott ~ LeSueur ~ Stinson ~ Bryant ~ Harper ~ Wyatt ~ Tyler ~ Strother ~ Shy/Shi ~ Chastain ~ Hancock ~ Batte ~ Birchett/Burchett ~ Judkins ~ Polk ~ McLarty ~ Eidson ~ Daniell ...

Most of these memorials are based on personal research from my family history (birth, death, marriage, military & other records). Other information was taken from grave markers or obituaries that I've discovered over the years. Cannot guarantee the accuracy of all these memorials, but believe most of them to be correct.

Will be glad to make memorial transfers upon request that is if related. Would very much like to hear from you and should you have any additional information and if there are any corrections to be made, please let me know.

Michael Tyler
Elizabeth Strother
Elizabeth Strother (1784-1822) who was the "1st wife" of Benjamin Pendleton appears to be the grand-daughter of Anthony Strother.

Lyon Tyler corrected the parents for Henry Tyler. His mother was Margaret Watts and William Strother was the son of William Strother and Margaret Thornton.

Marriage index entry
There is information stating a John Tyler and Eleanor Strother were married in Stafford County, Virginia in the year 1780 per "U.S. and International Marriage Records, 1560-1900, online index at The detail information from concerning the citation is that "this citation was obtained from an individual submission as part of a family group sheet and not part of an official Church or civil record, other than being listed as parents of an individual."

What was the true source of the information included in the index?

I would like to take this conversation off the Find-A-grave message board, please contact me directly.

John and Eleanor marriage
Carol, I just repeated what has become a part of an Ancestry index. There needs to be some serious research to see if that information is correct. Because of the lack of documentation, the most reliable indicator would be yDNA testing of a lineal male descendant of Thomas Tyler.

Tyler family info
Hi Carol,

I went to the VSL and have transcribed the article Tyler-Strother-Allen. John Tyler is only mentioned as being born to Henry and Alice, there is no other mention of him.

I think this would be a perfect instance of yDNA being able to indicate where to look for evidence of connections, if there is a lineal male descendant of Thomas.

One puzzle is someone's information became incorporated into a marriage index at Ancestry. Their info states John Tyler wed Eleanor Strother in the year 1780 in Stafford. I have looked for any extant record corroborating that index entry and have found none. The contact person also found no chancery causes mentioning John Tyler.

PM me at and I can send the article.

The reference concerning an “insane” John Tyler comes from:

In regard to the referenced chancery suit, I have a person to contact and I am trying to locate that article.

“Allice” Tyler is listed in the 1789 tax list and there are two “whites” in the family.

Thomas Gowery Strother is married to Ann Fisher Adie in Virginia. In the 1789 tax list he is listed as the only “white” person for his name, so Ann is not with him. In fact, he is referenced as “destitute” when he moves to Georgia by some sources and administration of his father’s estate was removed by suit.

Anne or Anna Tyler is the daughter who wed Robert Maze and moved to Georgia.

Regarding the marriage of Joseph Allen of Fauquier County to a Tyler, there is an online view of “Genealogies of Virginia Families: From Tyler’s Quarterly, Vol I” (1981 reprint), pp 2-4.

This reference lists Joseph Allen marrying Alice Tyler. This entire family relocates to Columbia County, Georgia. Joseph’s will is mentioned as dated 1803 and proved Dec. 1804. He apparently says “my beloved wife” in his will, so Alice survives him. Some have connected Anna to Joseph Allen, which is not correct.

In another online Strother listing there is a reference of John Tyler (1743-1813) marrying Eleanor Strother, and her birth is given as bef. 1732.
There is much confusion of information on this site and other “Strother” sites, especially the “mixing” of children or spouses between the brothers and cousins.

In a book compiled containing Overwharton Parish records, there is a reference to another “John Tyler” who is apparently too old to be the son of Henry and Alice. Some have attributed him as marrying Million Waugh. There are more than two unrelated Tyler lines in the northern Virginia area during this time and given the loss of records, following the lines is difficult, but you already know this!
